How silly can things get? Yesterday instead of choosing either or, the Metro Board approved both names for the new Gold Line portion due to open this summer. Take your pick: Edward R. Roybal Metro Gold Line Eastside Extension or la Linea de Oro, Edward R. Roybal. At some point in the future, they will decide what to call the Expo Line, which hasn't officially been named yet. Some would like it to be called the Rose Line. Anyway, this definitely caused some heated debate in yesterday's comment section.
